Tunnel Lace Cloth

Tunnel Lace Cloth

This cloth was made using the Tunnel lace stitch found in one of the Harmony guides with a simple knit stitch broader.

Very quick and easy to knit up. By keeping your stitches on the loose side with the yarn overs in the first row the second row is much easier to knit. It also helps with the p3togs, in the forth row. So keep it nice and relaxed.

Exact gauge is not essential to this project, knitting loosely with make things go much smoother

k = knit
p = purl
